  • Vonage will collaborate with Telkomsel to expand the power of network APIs for developers, enterprises, and Communications Service Providers (CSPs). This collaboration is formalized with the signing of a Strategic Partnership Agreement (SPA), coinciding with Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2024 in Barcelona, Spain.
  •  By combining Telkomsel's leading network and API capabilities with Vonage's communications and network APIs, developers are enabled to build advanced, secure, and reliable applications, while driving the acceleration of an open innovation ecosystem through the delivery of new services and solutions.

Holmdel, New Jersey – Vonage, a global leader in cloud communications helping businesses accelerate their digital transformation and a part of Ericsson (NASDAQ:ERIC), has announced a plan to collaborate with Telkomsel, a leading Indonesian digital telecommunications company, to expand the power of the network for developers, enterprises, and Communications Service Providers (CSPs) through APIs.

Seckin ArikanEVP and Head of Communications Platform as a Service (CPaaS) and Global Network Platform (GNP) Sales, Vonage said, "We are excited to announce our collaboration with Telkomsel. By combining Vonage's global communications and network APIs with Telkomsel's leading network APIs, we will be able to deliver new capabilities to enterprises and end users in Indonesia, while accelerating innovation for the network. We are expanding our CSP partnerships all over the world and are excited to bring these innovative capabilities to enterprises in Indonesia."

Kwok Wai KiatVice President Enterprise Product Management and Development, Telkomsel, stated, "We are thrilled to join forces with Vonage to harness the potential of the network through APIs and unlock new opportunities in the telecommunications landscape. This collaboration signifies our commitment as a leading digital telco service provider in Indonesia, consistently driving innovation through the utilization of cutting-edge technology to empower the nation's digital ecosystem and foster economic growth by delivering value-added services to our customers."

Telkomsel is a leading player in implementing CAMARA APIs in the market as part of the global GSMA Open Gateway initiative. This standardization initiative aims to provide developers and enterprises with universal access to operator networks by enabling seamless functionality of network APIs with operator networks.

In facilitating access to network APIs for developers and enterprises, Telkomsel has launched Digihub, a platform that provides access to Telkomsel's network APIs. Digihub opens up opportunities for the development and growth of innovative digital service solutions by providing easy access to Telkomsel's APIs, enabling businesses to explore new possibilities for innovation and expand their range of digital services.

Vonage's communications and network APIs make it easy for developers to embed communications capabilities into applications, systems, and workflows. Together with Telkomsel's Digihub network API capabilities, both companies plan to collaborate to enable developers to build advanced, secure, reliable, and innovative applications by exposing 5G and converged capabilities through APIs. This will drive an ecosystem for open innovation and deliver new services and solutions to optimize application performance, create new applications, and drive better customer experiences.

Telkomsel will also accelerate developer adoption by providing its network APIs through Vonage's global first-to-market service, the Vonage Network Registry, to deliver business solutions to market faster. The service will also facilitate CSPs in effectively scaling the consumption of network APIs by simplifying and standardizing the approval process and granting access to network providers' APIs for Application Service Providers (ASPs).
